Rumor: WWE contract for Richards & Edwards– Wrestling, INC
As it goes with any story involving Triple H, how much of this is true, we may never know. The guy has earned a reputation from the internet wrestling fanbase that cannot be shook and because of it I feel like it colors people’s writing about him.
Ok, disclaimer aside, the rumor is that former ROH stars Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards will not be offered a WWE contract after their NXT tryout. The two issues the COO allegedly had with them was 1) size & 2) a blown spot in their match with the Ascension. Could be a smokescreen as Richards and Edwards had been wrapping up indy dates saying they were going to Orlando. Or they’re set to jump to TNA. Stay tuned.
Angle open to WWE return– WEEI FM Boston
In an interview with a Boston radio station, Kurt Angle talked about his TNA contract status.
“I can’t say I’ll never go back,” Angle told WEEI at last weekend’s TNA show in Lowell, Mass. “My contract is up in eight months, so we’ll see.”

The Animal’s return on January 20th will set up involvement in Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, & WrestleMania, including house shows building to ‘Mania.

Summerslam is in mid-August, so you’d have to think Batista will still be all over WWE television to help promote Guardians.
